Revision as of 06:09, 30 January 2008

The user name users choose for themselves is no longer set in stone. On request, bureaucrats can change user account settings and article histories such that all previous edits of a given user are attributed to the new name using Special:Renameuser. Note: You must make the request from the account you want renamed; anonymous requests (except users whose usernames begin with a lowercase letter and therefore cannot log in) are ignored for security reasons.


Requesting a change

To change your user name, please make your request on this page. Please follow the procedure carefully or your request will not be fulfilled.


  1. Check if the new name you want does not exist (Special:Listusers). Do not create an account under the new name. (If you already created the new account, don't worry. We can do some stuff and fix it, but it's still recommended that you don't.)
  2. Sign in with the account that you want renamed.
    Of course, this is not possible if your account has a lowercase first letter. If you can't log in, then skip this step.
  3. Add your request to the bottom of the section below. Use the following template: {{renameuser|Old username|New username}}
  4. Once your request is dealt with, all edits from your old account will be reattributed to your new account.
  5. Move and redirect your user page and talk page to the new name if it has not already been done.

Current requests

Please use this template for new requests: {{renameuser|Old username|New username}}

DJ Te Cheat

I Don't Know If This'll Fit, But If So, Please Change this. Need to show Some Mad Props For My Homedog Blake. Thanks. DJ Te Cheat 24 May 2007


Could you change my name to "Moonea"? I know the name is created; it's my old account, and I never entered a password and was logged out. I also forgot my password to that account. Thank you in advance! 12:15, 22 February 2007 (UTC)


Could you change all edits with the name 'Dramus' to 'TDSDramus'? I'm the same person, but I forgot my password for the Dramus account, and did not have an E-Mail address linked to the Dramus account. Thanks. Lifing for love, drinking for free. 04:20, 6 March 2007 (UTC)


can you change it to foogs because thats my nickname people keep deleating my stuff because they think it stands for some thing that it doesn't

Done. — It's dot com 17:05, 24 May 2007 (UTC)


I'd like to change my username to Awexome. Retromaniac 02:06, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 17:05, 24 May 2007 (UTC)


Like weirdguy, mine was lowercase. Haven't been on in a while, thus meriting this name change. Thanks in advancements!

There is no username "cheetspeek"... there is, however, a User:CheetSpeek, with a capital S... is that you? If so, nothing needs to be done... phlip TC 06:25, 24 May 2007 (UTC)


I'm not 100% sure if I made an account; anyways, it used lowercase first. Change from jordoex to Jordo_EX. Thanks!(Same thing as with wierdguy)

There is no username "jordoex", here, or at the fanstuff, or the forum... "Jordo_EX" is avaliable, feel free to just register it. phlip TC 06:25, 24 May 2007 (UTC)


The lowercase username thing.

Done. -- Tom 12:55, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Vile.exe to Zorc

I'm just doin what loafin' saysZorc 00:32, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

In order to do that, you have to log in as Vile.exe to make the request. — It's dot com 16:23, 29 June 2007 (UTC)


Uh, yeah... I misspelled it. Thanks 09 August 2007

No probablo. — It's dot com 03:48, 10 August 2007 (UTC)


Had no idea it was that easy. Neat!--Antisexy 04:34, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 00:45, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Zapdos to Johnny Ohm

I don't really want the username anymore. Johnny Ohm sounds cooler. I haven't been here long so I think it's okay. Johnny Ohm Talk ??? 21:57, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 22:34, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Thanks Mr. Dotty. Johnny Ohm Talk ??? 22:44, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Erm... — It's dot com 22:56, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi dot comster. I don't think it will happen, but can I have my name changed to Garchomp? I know I changed my name already and it's probably not going to happen but can you please? Johnny Ohm Talk ??? 01:36, 27 November 2007 (UTC) (R.I.P) Oh, and reply on my talk page because yours is long and my computer is SLOW and can you just change it for free so I don't have to pay 200 bucks?

Sorry, no. One per customer. — It's dot com 15:53, 27 November 2007 (UTC)


I've been told by an undisclosed source, (my best friend bobby), that I have these often. I just want to change it to be more like me. Stringbodhunier

Done. — It's dot com 02:36, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Numa Numa

Please? I don't like the username and don't really know the english lyrics pf that song. And Xx6xX needs his name changed on the fanstuff wiki, unless you got it. Numa Numa!! (T*C)

I like your name.--Kanjiro talk 03:50, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm not going to rename you something so close to Cow Puncher's (the former Xx6xX's) name. It would just cause confusion as to who's who. — It's dot com 16:25, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Wait a minute. Are you and the fanstuff user Cow Puncher the same person? If you are, then you should have said so. If you're not, then you need to stop referring to yourself using that name. — It's dot com 18:48, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

I am. Numa Numa!! (T*C)
All right, I'll rename you, but I'm going to insist that your name here and on the fanstuff be the same ("Puncher" in both places, not "Puncha" in one). — It's dot com 19:07, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Done. — It's dot com 19:08, 6 September 2007 (UTC)


I made Nallan and realised it was quite similar to another user's account, Nallal. I just don't want to create confusion.

Done. — It's dot com 01:09, 13 September 2007 (UTC)


I just wanna update it for the upper-case rules.

The user "dementedc" does not exist. — It's dot com 00:00, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Ok... that's weird.


it stopped working

There is no user account hbah427, nor is there an Hbah427. Heimstern Läufer 23:14, 22 September 2007 (UTC)


This is my forum user name; I'd like it to match my main username. Thanks.

Done. — It's dot com 14:55, 10 October 2007 (UTC)


I know that there's an account named User:Sloshy4eva, but that's one of my old ones and I need that deleted, along with User:LongLivCoachZ. ~ CoachZ(talk · contribs)~ 02:43, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

It is technically possible to merge accounts, but I'm probably not going to worry about it in this case. — It's dot com 14:55, 10 October 2007 (UTC)


Because I don't like Club Penguin anymore and I like the e-mail credit card. SuperfieldCreditUnion

The name in credit card is Superfied Credit Union (not Superfield). Please clarify. — It's dot com 15:38, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
I am well aware that it is Superfied, not Superfield. But this does not change the fact that I still want it to be Superfield. It was not a spelling error. SuperfieldCreditUnion
All right then. Done. — It's dot com 03:12, 17 October 2007 (UTC)


Stupid Lowercase username update!!!!!

The user "jamief-c" does not exist. — It's dot com 23:01, 23 October 2007 (UTC)


I want mine changed, as I like Homsar Walker better. --The Goblin!! 21:59, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, that username is too similar to HomsarWalker, which was created just over a week ago. — It's dot com 01:11, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
But there's also Homsarrunner and Homsar runner. Honestly, I didn't even know there was a Homsarwalker before I came up with it. How about Homsar Sprinter? --The Goblin!! 03:07, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

I've wanted a new name for a while. I found one. The problem with most is mainly y icons, and everything, especially the TG thing in my sig. Nice thing about this is that that doesn't have to be changed. I want The Goblin! The Goblin!! 16:57, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 16:59, 26 November 2007 (UTC)


Unless there's a rule against all caps usernames, I think I'd like my user name to match what Strong Mad carves (DAGRON). Thanks! Dagron 20:03, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Done. When I first saw the request, I was afraid you were changing your name to something else altogether. I'm glad to see you were just tweaking it. — It's dot com 20:55, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Sam the Man

Love baseball. I think this is a good name. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 23:21, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Why would you want to change your name? Everyone knows you as Sam the Man — it'll be confusing! Trey56 03:41, 28 November 2007 (UTC)
Yes, you've established yourself rather heavily here under your current name, and as such I am rather disinclined to change it. Perhaps you could shed some light on why you would make this request. — It's dot com 03:49, 28 November 2007 (UTC)
Um, guys, everyone knew The Goblin as Techgeekmbg (as I still do) and yet you changed his name without this much investigation. Why are you picking on Sam? --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 02:03, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
I don't like it that techie got changed... i think that this whole name change thing is dumb unless it's a minor spelling or capitalization fix, or a switch for a relatively new user... but for an established user like techie or sam, i wouldn't think it a good idea at all. (Ya hear that sam? i'm saying that you're well known round these parts) — Defender1031*Talk 02:05, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
I was going to say that Sam has also been here longer, but then I checked the logs, and Sam's only a month older, account wise, than Techgeek (March 7 to April 25, respectively). So now my argument's all shot to whatsit. I guess Sam just established himself earlier than Techgeek. --DorianGray 05:18, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
The biggest (but certainly not only) difference between the two cases is that Techgeek demonstrated a long time ago that he wanted a new name, and over time his feelings on the matter remained the same. Sam, on the other hand, seems to be making the request on a whim (or maybe not, but he hasn't given us much to go on here). I'm not completely against making the change for him, but I think it would be fair for him to give us a pretty good reason to even consider it. — It's dot com 05:59, 29 November 2007 (UTC)


I misspelled biscuit. Me is genius. --Biscuthead 22:26, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Done. I noticed that when you created your account. ;) — It's dot com 06:00, 29 November 2007 (UTC)


Having "Homestar" in a username seems too uncreative, as this is the Homestar Runner Wiki. Homestar-Winner (talk) 21:22, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
Like, actually, I'll still think about it. Homestar-Winner (talk) 21:37, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Nah, you don't need to change your name. We've got several Homestars out there, the most notable being Homestar Coder, and four syllables has a much nicer cadence than a mere two. Also, you've been here a while, and you have a lot of edits. (I'm not saying we've never changed names of people who have a lot of edits, but I've come to realize it's something we should avoid unless there's a really compelling reason.) — It's dot com 22:05, 25 January 2008 (UTC)


I want it to be consistent with my Fanstuff user name.

Done. — It's dot com 15:51, 29 January 2008 (UTC)


i just like meme3 since i have it with almost everything else Imdaman 06:09, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
